The last show of 2020!
A completely different show to close of an eventful year.
Naomi is taking a peek at some of the racing highlights of 2020: which races are worth remembering and why? What happened, before, during and after?
Highly subjective, the races and events are not ranked, although she does highlight a favourite in the scintillating renewal of the Preakness Stakes.
Preakness Stakes – Swiss Skydiver
Breeders’ Cup Juvenile – Essential Quality
Belmont Stakes – Tiz the Law
Breeders’ Cup Classic – Authentic
Breeders’ Cup Distaff – Monomoy Girl
Breeders’ Cup Sprint – Whitmore
Met Mile – Vekoma
Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf – Audarya
Golden Rod – Travel Column
Of course this list could be double the size. The 2020 Kentucky Derby certainly was a race to behold as well, albeit possibly the exploits of both the winner Authentic and runner up Tiz the Law were better viewed via some of their other key performances.
Which race would you add?
